Bebop Spoken There

KT Reeder: "The idea of teaching somebody to improvise is just bloody ridiculous. In this country jazz has been appropriated by universities. They have jazz courses, and they churn out people who have a degree in jazz, which makes me feel very nauseous, the idea that you can be trained to do jazz." - (Giant Steps by David Burke)

Archive quotes.

The Things They Say!

'606' Club: "A toast to Lance Liddle of the terrific jazz blog 'Bebop Spoken Here'"
